It shows a history of consistent performance at the highest levels. Whether they can carry those skills and so forth to another weight class with the same results is a valid question, but it shows that they at least have those skills & attributes in the first place. Aldo, Edgar, GSP, Silva, and Jones are all proven fighters at the highest levels. Rashad is not. That is the difference.
